Tourist Tuesday

Currently undergoing Chemotherapy to treat systemic Ulcerative Colitis as a last measure.


I promised my wife that I would be up and out the door by 11 so I was actually awake at 10. That is big since I worked till 0500! We had plans to go up into Lefkara village in the mountains where my wife goes to visit friends now and again. She got a scholarship a couple months ago to do a program sponsored by UNESCO to preserve a special type of "crochet" for lack of a better word. Imagine the most fine knit cloths you have EVER seen in your life. Imagine a table cloth that takes more than 1 year to make by hand! You can only find this design in this village by these people. My wife is part of a preservation project of a national treasure.

We ended up picking up two friends on the way and we headed up into the mountains. All the way there I kept thinking:

1) I could have slept in today and trained in the evening
2) Please don't let me get sick in the car
3) I hope there is a place where I can take a nap wherever we are going

We ate good food, my son and I walked around the village a little and we had great company! Can't wait to go back!

Came straight inside at home, ate, sleep on the couch from 8-10 in the evening. Then I went to work. I have a teenage client that just qualified for Worlds in Powerlifting and he had me all fired up to get to his program for the week. In a creative mood I couldn't sit and work so I went to the drawing board...where I map out every client's weekly program so I can SEE it before I type and send it!
